ZAKI IBRAHIM

Zaki Ibrahim may not like her music categorized, but she does colour-code her recordings. In 2006, she released Sho (Iqra In Orange). Iqra is an Arabic word that means ‘to constantly seek knowledge’. Her latest EP is entitled Eclectica (Episodes In Purple). With the broad palette of influences she’s developed from Cape Town to Canada and the vibrant artistic community that surrounds her, chances are good that she’ll run through the colours of the rainbow before she runs out of music. Vanesa enjoys a Spotlight conversation with Zaki Ibrahim.
+ SOME OF OUR FAVORITE VIDEOS: from Ozomatli, Kinky and The Yoshida Brothers to Pacifika and Susheela Raman with a video debut from CSS!

 INSIDE THE BEAT: Later, Manu Chao takes us to one of the most desolate places on earth. At over 10 thousand, 5 hundred square kilometers, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flat, creating a landscape that looks like another planet. Chao uses this striking backdrop to set the tone for his independent film, Infinita Tristeza or Infinite Sadness. And, we’ll share his latest video … a political put-down and a salute to the human spirit. It’s all Inside The Beat with Manu Chao.
